RESULTS

Found (21) clinical trials

The purpose of this registry is to collect and maintain clinical information about patients that have been diagnosed with Familial Hypercholesterolemia (FH). The information will be used to look at current treatment, events, and outcomes of these patients. This will help further the understanding of the disease and improve care, ...

Phase N/A

Lp(a) and Aortic Valve Calcification

Aortic valve stenosis (AVS), the most common form of valve disease in the western world, afflicts more than 1 million individuals in North America [1] and the burden of AVS is high and is expected to double within the next 50 years [2]. Medical therapy to prevent development or reduce ...

Phase N/A

MYOCARDIAL SILENT INFARCTIONS AND FIBROSIS IN FAMILIAL HYPERCHOLESTEROLEMIA (CHOLCOEUR)

To demonstrate the higher prevalence of silent myocardial infarction in a population of asymptomatic patients with familial hypercholesterolemia at high cardiovascular risk in comparison to control patients, the protocol is the following: - to enroll 75 patients with familial hypercholesterolemia (FH) - to enroll 35 subjects without FH (control group) ...

Long Term Post Marketing Specified Drug Use Result Survey for Evolocumab in Japan

The objectives of study are to 1) determine the incidence of adverse events and adverse drug reactions among patients receiving evolocumab for up to 2 years, and 2) identify and describe patient characteristics (e.g. demographics, medical history) associated with the safety and effectiveness of evolocumab therapy for the patients with ...

Russian Familial Hypercholesterolemia Registry

*Design. We have chosen a randomly selected cohort of individuals who have been tested in the Moscow office of the "INVITRO" Laboratory on the basis of advertising campaign held in September, 2013, for the purpose of TC level measurement and determination of cardiovascular risk with the use of SCORE chart. ...

Phase N/A

Effect of Rapeseed Oil and Sunflower Oil

Familial hypercholesterolemia (FH), an inherited disorder of lipoprotein metabolism, is a risk for early cardiovascular disease (CVD). This autosomal dominant disease is characterized by markedly elevated plasma concentrations of low density lipoprotein (LDL) and total cholesterol (TC). The purpose of this study is to compare the effect of a diet ...

Phase N/A

Familial Hypercholesterolemia Canada / Hypercholesterolemie Familiale Canada

Familial hypercholesterolemia (FH) is a genetic lipoprotein disorder characterized by elevations in low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) >95th percentile for age and gender. Affected individuals may show clinical manifestations (xanthomas, xanthelasmas and premature arcus corneus) although these manifestations are seen less frequently with early diagnosis and treatment. Untreated, FH will lead ...

Phase N/A

Evaluation of Chylomicrons Metabolism in Sub-Clinical Atherosclerosis in Patients Whit Heterozigous Familial Hypercholesterolemia (FH) Treated With Statin Plus Ezetimibe

Study Title: Evaluation of chylomicrons metabolism in sub-clinical atherosclerosis in patients whit Heterozigous Familial Hypercholesterolemia (FH) treated with statin plus ezetimibe. Background: Coronary artery calcification (CAC) is a marker of sub-clinical coronary atherosclerosis which correlates with higher risk of clinical events. It was already demonstrated that CAC is more prevalent ...

Phase N/A

Screening Protocol for a Gene Therapy Trial in Subjects With Homozygous Familial Hypercholesterolemia

Homozygous Familial Hypercholesterolemia (HoFH) is a rare genetic metabolic disorder characterized by markedly elevated LDL-cholesterol (LDL-C) levels, resulting in severe atherosclerosis often leading to early onset of cardiovascular disease. The most frequent cause is mutation in the LDL receptor gene (LDLR). LDL-C levels remain frequently above acceptable levels despite treatment ...

Phase N/A

Developing and Implementing Familial Hypercholesterolemia Registry

Familial hypercholesterolemia (FH) is a genetic disorder define as high cholesterol levels, particularly very high levels of low-density lipoprotein (LDL), in the blood and early cardiovascular disease and premature death. FH is an autosomal dominant disease with a prevalence 1:500 (new study in Netherlands demonstrated 1:244) in population more frequent ...
